For an olive fix, head to Parthenon Supermarket

If you appreciate good olives, be sure to stop by Parthenon Supermarket (3080 West Broadway) when you’re in Kitsilano. The Greek deli offers a nice selection of the salty orbs for reasonable prices. My favourites are the organic green olives stuffed with lemon peel ($1.85 per 100 grams), which are firm with a mild, citrus-y centre. They’re great for snacking alongside pita and Parthenon’s feta-and-yogurt-based God’s Dip ($1.69 per 100 grams), and they add a fresh burst to a martini. Or just pop ’em straight from the bowl.
